Rules Girl Stage Theory - The stages leading up to LOVE

There is a certain development, process and progress that comes with dating and love. You don't just jump into love of course, so how do we define the stages leading up to it?
Welp, here are the Rules Girls Love Stages...
Working from the bottom up here they are:
1. Attraction. 2. Interest 3. Crush 4. Like 5. Loake* 6. Love
oooh la la... you met someone...let the stages begin...
Attraction - You think they're hot or you like their personality, the little you know about it. You haven't interacted with them a ton, but the little you know makes you want to know more.
Interest - You know the person fairly well an have had at least a few interactions with them and actually think it worthy of thinking about pursuing.

Around the Interest and Crush stage is when you start asking
flowers whether he loves you... or loves you not...

Crush - It's just a little crush, not like I faint every time we touch. It's not that crazy infatuated, stalkeresque version of the word. You think they are cute/hot/handsome and fab but it's pretty much based on looks and initial chemistry and interaction thus far, there isn't a whole lot of depth yet.
Like - Here comes the depth diving...You begin to know each other pretty well, hang/go out tons and you are hopefully dating them at this point... This phase often lasts for quite... a... while.
evident you dig each other, you still get lots of butterflies around these stages
Loake- You've been liking each other for quite a while now and aren't quite ready to say the ultimate L word yet, but you're having some pretty strong feelers towards them. You don't know how else to really make that clear so you use the LOAKE to express you're desire to maybe think about loving them, but not quite ready to make that leap yet.
Just imagine saying this when saying goodnight, "I LOAKE YOU".
baha. I love it. I mean loake it.


uh oh... you're in trouble now...headed down the road to love.
LOVE - Love in itself is always hard to define. But when we talk about love in this situation, we mean IN-love. Not just "I love my bff", but "I'm stinkin' in *LOVE with this dude". It's more than the hormonal mushy gushy beginning stages it's the pretty much "i wanna grow old with you" and "be yours forever" kinds of feelings. This is intense stuff...

XOXO
Rules Girl


*Even once you reach the LOVE stage, there are multiple levels of Love. But we'll leave that for another post.
*Loake was created by K. Keeler, please contact her further scholarly information if needed.

I'm in that Humpty-Dumpty-after-the-great-fall stage. Broken. If all the king's horses and all the king's men couldn't put Humpty together again, what hope do I have?

I've been there too, but really, we aren't eggshells. We don't break, we remold until we're a better version of ourselves. I'm sorry for you though, it sucks, I know.

I can"t believe u published my term,,, that's hilarious!!! It definitely is a step though :) "feelers" is perfect too! Kind of like in bowling... the feelers that holds up that one pin that keeps you from a strike! Hey that kinda explains "loake".
